Whether a vacation or staycation, the key to a great summer ensemble are the accessories that accompany your outfit. From must-have beach bags to throw-some-shade sunnies, we bring you the key summer accessories to add to both your wardrobe and suitcase this season.

The Beach Bag

Meet your new holiday hero – an essential part of not only your holiday wardrobe, but also the new ‘it’ bag for this summer’s city style. Opt for classic natural straw for a goes-with-everything clever purchase, or choose a stand out staple beach bag, such as nautical stripes or an on-trend slogan.

The Straw Hat

Statement Sunglasses

They’re quite possibly the most important accessory of summer – so whether you’re the type of woman who owns one classic pair or has a drawer full of 30, it’s always best to invest in a statement style of sunnies to keep on trend. From oval shapes, mirrored lenses and tinted colours, simply pick your pair and make any outfit pop.

All the Extras
